Dear Colleagues,

Just a note to let you know that I will be retiring on May 31, 2017. I have truly enjoyed and appreciated being a part of the work that you do on behalf of young children and their families these past sixteen and a half years and wish you all the best in the years to come. The ECTA Center will continue to send announcements, research findings, and new online resources via eNotes, though the format and frequency of these mailings may change.

Please stay tuned and send any questions or comments in the future to my wonderful replacement, Sonya Detwiler.

Sonya has a master's in library and information science, and a master's in education. She has over 15 years of experience as a librarian and bibliographer, and over 7 years of experience working with children in a variety of settings. She has been an intern at Boston Children's Hospital, a toddler teacher, an after-school program coordinator, and a guidance counselor (K-8).

Sonya is thrilled to have the opportunity to apply her dual career experiences (i.e., child development and library science) to her new position as Information Specialist for the FPG Child Development Institute ECTA Center. She is especially excited to be a part of our valuable early intervention and early childhood special education initiatives, and to continue providing you with quality news and information through eNotes.

Sue Goode
